Frosty 15 Information
Frosty 15 is an out and back 15 mile and 15k trail race on the beautiful and historic Yockanookany section of the Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail in Madison, MS on February 8th. THE RACE CAP IS 150 runners across both distances. The course offers a fun, often rugged, single track trail that runs from the West Florida Boundary trailhead at mile marker 108, north to the Highway 43 Trailhead and back for the 15 mile course. This trail is open to hikers and horse back riders, so there will be horse hoof "holes" in the trail. There will be a turnaround point along the trail for the 15K course.
START/FINISH: West Florida Boundary historic site on the Natchez Trace Parkway, milepost 107.9
TIME: 8:00 am with a 5 hour time limit.
REGISTRATION: Both races are $40 and the race increases to $50 on January 2. MUTS members get $5 off. Sorry, there are no refunds, transfers or deferments for this race.
AID: 2 aid stations stocked with water, Tailwind, fruit, and sweet/salty food. You must have a water bottle or hydration pack. This is a cupless event. There will be an aid station at mile 2.75 and mile 7.7 at the turn around point for the 15 mile race. Grilled cheeses and tomato soup will warm you up after the race!
AWARDS: 1st-3rd place male and female in each race. Runners can change from the 15 mile to the 15K or 15K to 15 mile during the race and get credit for that race result, but you will not be eligible for an award.
